Spanische Mobilfunkanbieter starten landesweiten joyn-Dienst

- Kunden von Movistar, Orange und Vodafone haben ab sofort Zugang zu vollständig interoperablen und sicheren Rich Communications Services

MADRID, 28. November 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Die GSMA gab heute bekannt, dass die drei führenden Mobilfunkanbieter in Spanien, Movistar, Orange und Vodafone, unter der Marke joyn™, die sich an Endanwender richtet, gemeinsame Rich Communication Services (RCS) für ihre Kunden eingeführt haben. Damit ist Spanien das weltweit erste Land, in dem eine vollständig kompatible Rich Communications-Lösung auf dem Markt ist, die den Mobilfunkkunden von Movistar, Orange und Vodafone zugänglich ist.

Mithilfe der joyn-Dienste können die Kunden chatten und Textnachrichten oder Sprachanrufe mit Bildern oder Videos ergänzen, die gleichzeitig mit einem Gespräch auf sichere und private Weise mit allen Personen auf ihrer Kontaktliste, die joyn nutzen, ausgetauscht werden. Dabei spielt es keine Rolle, welchen Anbieter oder welches mobile Gerät die Nutzer verwenden. Weitere Dienstleistungen, z. B. Voice over IP (VoIP) oder IP-Videotelefonate, sollen demnächst hinzukommen. Die Dienste können sowohl über die Mobilfunknetze als auch über die Wi-Fi-Netzwerke dieser Anbieter genutzt werden.

„Die GSMA ist hocherfreut, dass die joyn-Dienste jetzt in ganz Spanien verfügbar sind und den Kunden eine größere Auswahl an Kommunikationsdienstleistungen bieten, ohne dass die Qualität und die Sicherheit, die sie von ihren Anbietern mittlerweile gewohnt sind, darunter leiden", meint Michael O'Hara, Marketingleiter bei der GSMA. „Diese erste Implementierung einer neuen Technologie erforderte große Anstrengungen und viel Führungsstärke bei der Abstimmung der Systeme der einzelnen Hersteller, Entwickler, Integratoren und Anbieter aufeinander. Überall auf der Welt werden die Verbraucher von den Bemühungen und der Vorreiterrolle der drei spanischen Mobilfunkanbieter profitieren."

Movistar, Orange und Vodafone bieten die joyn-Dienste zunächst über eine Anwendung für Android an, eine Version für das iPhone soll in Kürze folgen. Die spanischen Mobilfunknutzer können joyn nun über App Stores herunterladen. Demnächst sollen auch mehrere mit joyn ausgestattete Geräte erhältlich sein, deren Interoperabilität mit den drei Mobilfunkanbietern gründlich getestet wurde. Um die Marke „joyn" führen zu dürfen, müssen die Geräte umfangreiche Interoperabilitätstests bestehen und einen Zertifizierungsprozess durchlaufen, wodurch Qualität, Schutz der Privatsphäre, Sicherheit und Erreichbarkeit der Dienste sichergestellt werden sollen. Mit joyn ausgestattete Geräte werden voraussichtlich ab Anfang 2013 im Einzelhandel erhältlich sein.

„Bei der Entwicklung dieser interoperablen Lösung für ihre Kunden hatten die Anbieter im Zuge des RCS-Programms auch Gelegenheit, sich untereinander über ihre Erfahrungen und Erkenntnisse auszutauschen, wodurch sie die Markteinführungszeit dieses Dienstes verkürzen konnten", fährt O'Hara fort. „Die joyn-Dienste sind ab sofort bei einzelnen Anbietern in Deutschland und den USA erhältlich. Voraussichtlich werden in Deutschland noch in diesem Jahr und in einigen weiteren europäischen Ländern im Laufe des Jahres 2013 weitere anbieterübergreifende Implementierungen vorgenommen werden."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
